alfa 156 selespeed fault
Hi everyone , really need a hand on this one. Starting the car from cold the selespeed box selects the gears perfectly but as soon as the engine gets warm it has a mind of its own. Instead of changing up it skips into neutral. It can go from 2nd to 5th instead of 3rd. Also it will often show a different gear than the one selected e.g was in 2nd then its telling me im in 4th or 5th and even reverse sometimes, as soon as i pull over it drops straight into neutral. selespeed warning light comes on and buzzes too.
Iv'e checked the batt and thats fine, also checked the alternator and thats functioning fine, checked the selespeed oil but its a light yellow colour. only had the car 4 months so don't know what oil it is, saying that the car was fine when i bought it.
There is no alfa garage anywere near me and to be honest it wouldnt even get there.
Wheres the best area to start? anyone had this problem before and did they fix it without spending a fortune?
